Horse welfare is paramount ...

A much brighter morning

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
Oscar Wilde.

It is a bright morning and much warmer. The last few days have been wet and cold so it was nice to have a proper spring morning. First lot did a good exercise up Warren Hill grass and second lot went via the Town Sand to do a good spin on Railway land. There was quite a bit of excitement at both first and second lot as we had a loose one each time. Both were caught before any great damage was done, just a few scratches.

Yesterday was a bit disappointing with Rayvin Black at Newmarket but, we certainly learnt in one fell swoop that he is much more of a stayer then a miler. Being by Halling he will stay at least a mile and a half, I think that he should get two miles later on. He is a high class colt, and although I was disappointed, I am sure we will have some great days with him in the future.

It always amazes me how far and wide this website is followed and how much it keeps owners and their families informed about their horses. One of my owners yesterday remarked his sister lived in Canada and nearly knew as much about his horse as he did. So hello Penny Smith, you have got a mention today, and please spread the word all over Canada and North America. A few new owners from that part of the world would be very handy.

I hope that you have enjoyed our series of farrier videos, and found them informative as well as interesting. I know Zac enjoyed doing them, and he has had plenty of stick from his colleagues about it. He may even buy himself a new cap now! For those of you who don’t watch the soaps on television this next bit will be lost on you, but I call him Zac because he wares a cap just like a character on Emmerdale, and he could be a younger version. See the pictures below.
